Remember Louie?
You old-time fans will probably remember colorful St. John's coach Lou Carnesecca, who coached there 24 years and won 526 games and went to the Final Four in 1985. According to Wikipedia, Louie is still living, now 95 years old. He was one of the truly memorable figures from the war zone that was the old Big East.

Lou had eighteen 20-win seasons at St. John's.

I was a fan of the ABA's New York Nets when he was their coach.

RE: Remember Louie?
His given name was Luigi.

IMDB (don't know how up to date it is) says he has been married to Mary Chiesa from 1951 to the present. I don't know what "the present" was. However, St. John's honored them at the President's Dinner in 2008, so that would have been 57 years at that point.
